Rules & Mechanics

On this page you can download the rules and game mechanics which govern the Vale games. Most players should only need to read the Core Rules and any supplementary appendices which relate to skills they have chosen.

We expect that players may have further queries regarding specifics and we will be building FAQs into the rules section of the wiki over time. You can also contact the designers by e-mail on and we will try to answer your questions.

Below you can download the Introduction, Core Rules and Character Creation information, as well as several appendices covering Further Rules. We also now have a rules summary which highlights the most important rules on one (double-sided) sheet of A4.
